Modern Renaissance Man

Ok... Totally kidding about the whole "Renaissance Man" thing, but I am pretty much interested in everything...

Husband, father, computer programmer, stained glass artist, photographer, product manager, auto enthusiast, violinist, student, public speaker, philosopher, current events hound, avid reader, writer, history buff, inventor, armchair philosopher, technologist, sky-diver (once is enough on that one), formula-1 nut, designer, ... (all in no particular order, of course...)

I'm a proud graduate of the University of Missouri, Columbia school of Engineering.

Bachelor's Degree, Electrical Engineering (BS EE)

In my Electrical Engineering studies I learned about 3-phase power, electromagnetics, and analog vs. digital signals. But most importantly, I learned troubleshooting and problem solving skills invaluable not only in my career, but also in my everyday life. I also learned that computer chips have a very unique smell when you hook them up backwards and they fry.

Bachelor's Degree, Computer Engineering (BS CE)

In my Computer Engineering courses, I wrote a small operating system, learned different programming languages, and explored computational logic. I also learned that being a Computer Engineer also immediately labels you as "tech support" for your friends and family.

Photography

I've traveled the US and quite a bit of the world for work and pleasure and I always try to have a camera with me.

These are just some of the companies that I have worked with.

I've spent over 15 years working hard to develop strong customer relationships for my employers. However, I started by spending the first years of my career programming CAD software before transitioning into a Product Management role.

On a daily basis, I'm responsible for gathering customer requirements for future projects, assisting with sales engagements, managing customer relationships and activities, and defining a future vision for the products under my jurisdiction.

Over my years as a Software Engineer and Product Manager I have worked closely with the companies you see on the left and more.

  • Social Media

    I sometimes tweet out a Quope of the Day (A Quote or Quip) or other things that are mostly nonsense...

    Follow me on Twitter if you wish... here.

    Or link with me on LinkedIn... here.

    I mostly keep my Facebook limited to friends, classmates, and family. If you think you fit in one of those categories, friend me here
